Default Jet 180 Degree Stat

Is this the correct stat for my 2010 Ram?

http://moesperformance.com/index.php...oducts_id=9078

Looked it up and some sellers state 2003-2008 while others also include the 2009+ HEMI's with same PN

If it works in the third gen, it works in the 4th! I have living proof of that with my AutoZone 180 T-stat

I had heard about the 180deg thermostats and want to get one myself but can someone explain how this helps?

I would be interested in someone explaining this as well, other than the obvious that the engine would run cooler. Would the AC be colder? Would the heat in the winter time not be as warm? What really are the benefits to doing this mod?

It keeps the motor from heatsoak, which basically means the motor makes less power the hotter it gets. A/C and heat are not affected by the change.

How hard of an install is this? I wouldn't have to drain all of the coolant in order to install the thermostat would I? Does anyone have a tutorial written up? Thanks!

No, changing your TStat wont. Hell, they probably would never even know honestly even if they broke into your motor.
